THIS SUNDAY AT FBC
May 5, 2019

Join us for our 10:30 AM Worship Service this Sunday as Pastor Glen continues his Message Series "After Easter Jesus - 5 Crucial Conversations With Christ"

Breakfast With Jesus
John 21:9-14
Also this Sunday:

We will observe the Lord's Supper during Worship. As always, on Lord's Supper Sundays we collect a special offering for our Benevolence Fund that directly goes to helping needy individuals in our community.

Stay after Worship for our Monthly Church-Wide Lunch in the Multipurpose Room! This month we'll be enjoying a spaghetti dinner! Donations are gladly accepted.

And on Church Lunch Sundays we ask that everyone bring an item from their pantry for the FBC Food Pantry. Let's help feed our community as we gather to feed ourselves.
